    Correct Answer
    B. He did not play handball.
    Explanation
    The negative past simple of the sentence "He played handball" is "He did not play handball." This is because in the past simple tense, we use the auxiliary verb "did" followed by the base form of the main verb to form negative sentences. In this case, the base form of the verb "play" is used after "did not" to indicate that he did not engage in the activity of playing handball.

  • 3. 

    What is the auxiliary verb in the negative past simple?

      Was/were

      Did

    • C.

      Do

    • D.

      Is/are

    Correct Answer
    B. Did
    Explanation
    In the negative past simple, the auxiliary verb used is "did." This is because "did" is the past tense form of the auxiliary verb "do." In negative sentences, the auxiliary verb "did" is used to indicate that an action did not happen in the past. For example, "I did not go to the party last night." In this sentence, "did not" is the negative form of the auxiliary verb "did."

    Correct Answer
    didn´t make, did not make
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "didn't make, did not make." In the simple past tense, the negative form is formed by adding "didn't" before the base form of the verb. Therefore, both "didn't make" and "did not make" are correct ways to complete the negative sentence.

    Correct Answer
    C. She did not ask a lot of questions.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "She did not ask a lot of questions." This is the negative simple past form of the sentence "She asked a lot of questions." In English, to form the negative simple past, we use the auxiliary verb "did" followed by "not" and the base form of the main verb. Therefore, the correct sentence is "She did not ask a lot of questions."

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "She didn't come to the party, She did not come to the party." This answer accurately reflects the negative form of the sentence "She came to my party." Both "didn't" and "did not" are contractions of the negative auxiliary verb "did" and the negative particle "not," indicating the absence of her attendance at the party.

      You don't jump high

    Correct Answer
    A. You did not jump high
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "You did not jump high" because it follows the correct grammatical structure for forming the negative past tense of the verb "jump." In English, the negative past tense is formed by using the auxiliary verb "did not" followed by the base form of the main verb, which in this case is "jump."
